Plettenberg Bay Country Club, Plettenberg Bay
Plettenberg Bay Golf Course, Plettenberg Bay, Garden Route, South Africa / This is no little seaside golf course, it is a magnificent 18-hole layout in the most lovely of settings. All greens and bunkers are to USGA specifications. All greens and fairways are on automatic sprinkler systems - the result is a golf course you will remember.
Upgraded by Rob O’Friell, in 2000, the 18 superb, new bent-grass greens have been built to USGA specifications. Their new shapes and slopes plus the new bunkers and water features have created a challenging yet beautiful course. The golf course is set in a park-like, proclaimed nature reserve and is the pride of the golfers of Plettenberg Bay.
The 470-metre par-five 4th hole plays particularly long in a southeaster when the average golfer will have little chance of reaching the water-guarded green in two, and sometimes even in three. By contrast the 11th is only 110 metres long, one of the shortest par-threes in the country. The 300-metre par-four 14th is a sharp dogleg-left which features two tall oak trees which are on the left-hand side of the fairway just after the hole curves towards the green. The foliage makes the drive an exacting one.
Appropriate golf attire is required.
